David Bowie denies songs being used in Heroes Musical

Yesterday I wrote an article about Heroes: The Musical featuring David Bowie songs which was due to play at the IndigO2 in March.

It had been reported in a Sunday newspaper that Bowie had surprisingly given permission for his songs to be used in the show which was to feature a cast of over 30 performers and a live band.

This news seems to be inaccurate as last night David Bowie’s website issued a statement saying: "Neither the David Bowie Organization, nor its co-publishers EMI Music and Chrysalis, has issued a license for this performance at the O2. There are no negotiations pending for a long running musical featuring the music of Mr Bowie."

Must admit I felt a bit uneasy when I checked the O2 website and the musical was not listed, but with statements from the writer and a poster published it seems to be legitimate …
